is on the airwaves trying to tell women romney doesn't oppose contraception. take a look at both. these are totally dishonest. >> two supreme court choices. >> those ads saying mitt romney would ban all abortions and could treption seption seemed a big extreme so i looked into it. turns out romney doesn't oppose contraception at all. in fact, he thinks abortion should be an option in cases of rape, incest, or to save a mother's life. this issue is important to me, but i'm more concerned about the debt our children will be left with. i voted for president obama last time, but we just can't afford four more years. >> i don't know who that actor is. i wish i could have talked to her and said no one ever said that romney was going to outlaw contracepti contraception. stop fighting a strawman. you're being dishonest to women out there. the issue is whether your insurance policy should cover it and who gets to decide whether it does or not. a legitimate discussion. but to say there's been an accusation, somebody is going to outlaw contraception and birth control which hasn't been outlawed since the '50s,
reagan is a radio talk show hosts. both of my guests are msnbc political analysts. i want to start with ron. this stuff, you know, weeks ago the romney campaign said, we're not going to let this campaign be run by fact-checkers. i mean, i have never heard it said -- you just say we don't care if you find out we're lying. lying is a bad word. we don't care if you catch us. we're going to keep doing it. because we're desperate. >> yeah, well, they may be desperate. ohio is going to be the clincher for this election. everybody has been saying it and it's probably true. mitt romney probably hopes that the truth isn't going to find him in ohio. he's been a shape-shifter his entire political career. this shouldn't surprise us. and yet somehow he's taken it to a new level. the romney campaign attaches itself to untruth like a sexually aroused little dog on a visitor's leg. i mean, just starts humping away at these lies here. as you said, he makes the speech where he says that he read something somewhere about jeep going overseas to china. that's pointed out to him that's not true. chrysle
. tonight the presidential campaign with just eight days left sits at a stand still with both president obama and governor romney canceling their events for tonight and tomorrow night. here to answer some of the political questions this storm brings to us is john nickel, washington correspondent for the nation. the president of the united states has a big job, especially when you have fema working for you. he has all the powers of incumbency and all the powers to display how good an executive he is. romney, on the sidelines, the breaks of the game. >> it puts an awful lot on hold. people probably could never have imagined that a storm on the east coast of the united states would be canceling events in wisconsin and ohio, scrambling events just this afternoon in davenport, iowa. the fact of the matter is over the next two days barack obama and mitt romney and also paul ryan have canceled events as far away as colorado. not just because of concerns about the storm surge, but also because of concerns about the image. this is for better or worse an image game now, and nobody wants to be see
have endorsed romney. getting the endorsement is i think a sign that these guys think, number one, they want to be with winners. both of them are very i think careful guys when they throw their endorsement out there. so i think it says something -- >> what would you rather have, "the des moines register" or mayor bloomberg? >> it's not even close. you would want bloomberg. the timing of bloomberg, too. couldn't have come at a better time. >> say question to you, bloomberg or "the des moines register"? >> i would rather have bloomberg. you're talking about bloomberg, powell, and then in some senses the tacit at least visual endorsement of chris christie. chris christie is obviously not endorsing barack obama in any explicit way, but he said a lot of kind things about the president in the last 48 hours. you have a bunch of centrist kind of pseudo republicans, who knows where they are politically, but the cumulative effect i think is powerful. >> is there obama momentum right now, chuck? you score these pretty straight right down the middle. >> it's funny. i call it -- there's sort o
. >> we've got joy. >> i was going to answer that. >> joy reid. thank you both for joining us. everybody knows the stakes are enormous. that's signals aren't just where they're at, they're being radiated on the nightly news, this program, everywhere. aren't you impressed by romney who is often very stiff and overdressed, never unbuttons his tie, more dressed up than ever. obama wearing the grandfather cardigan or whatever he's got on. i love that kind of sweater, my wife hates it. >> fdr. >> romney looks like he's going to a board meeting, and he doesn't exactly sound like a guy giving a rousing rally. he sounds like somebody -- >> what's with the president of the united states with that costume on today? >> he's doing cool obama. he needs the young vote. >> is that what it is? >> i think right now i'd rather be barack obama than mitt romney. if you look at the polls, his campaign feels pretty good about where they are, and so he's sort of enjoying this. >> i get up this morning and started clocking it around 8:00. i started clocking minute to minute to minute to get the jobless number.
romney peaked exactly where john kerry peaked in 2004, the first debate. they both had a first great debate, got a great bounce, and it dissipated -- >> slowly dissipated. >> -- over the course of the campaign, and they couldn't get the wind back. >> i'm not sure obama is peaking at the best moment, but the campaign, particularly in ohio, seems to have reached a plateau, this small -- >> why do you come with this debbie downer -- >> let me finish. >> are you irish? >> i'm jewish, close. >> dim scenario. >> if you look in ohio, it has narrowed in the last couple weeks, but it's hit this 4% mark and it hasn't changed -- >> let's go to -- >> obama steady -- >> let's go by what obama thinks -- not obama, romney thinks. if he thinks he's winning, why is he throwing these mud balls like this guy is hanging around with chavez? why he throwing mud balls about jeeps going to china when it's not true? why is he heading to pennsylvania? i just checked with neil, one of the top consultants in pennsylvania, he said four points to six points. he says they will only lose -- >> why are they going to
much for the daytime report now. it's great having you both times of day. ron allen in point pleasant beach on the jersey shore. coming up, spin game from the republicans. romney's expanding the map, he says, advertising now in tv in michigan and pennsylvania and forcing team obama, the other side, to play defense. from the democrats, romney can't find the votes for the battleground states, so he's throwing wild passes where he can't win. the new polls out today suggest the democrats are right, this is a distraction, not a reality. also, that romney jeep advertisement we told you about yesterday was so dishonest, so misleading that chrysler and gm executives themselves are pushing back. people expect politicians to trim the truth a bit, but it's possible that mitt romney has just crossed a line that not even the most uninformed voters will accept, that jeep is moving to china. and look who's back, joe isuzu, speaking of dishonesty, this time campaigning, kind of, for mitt romney. >> i'm joe isuzu. guys, vote for mitt romney and you'll get a free binder full of women, you have my word
the federal government. one other thing, when romney was governor of massachusetts, he was not shy about asking for federal disaster aid. there were two big storm and chemical plant meltdown that took place in 2006. he asked for federal aid both times and they didn't want to spend their own money until they found out how much fema, how much the feds were going to send them. >> i think if george w. bush had and the heed he had weather down there, if he flown in marine one and handed out water bottles for a couple of days, handed out something, people wanted water. it wasn't like they didn't need it, just be part of that, something like lyndon johnson would have done. the image with not just the african-americans but everybody would have been so different. now the president has to do something -- i assume, starting with you, james, romney will be doing something like helping people sandbag at a microlevel in the next couple of days. what should the president be doing, physically? >> first of all, it's clear that in a weird sense that he's going to try to make -- maybe even coin a phrase a
